With my Recent Gundam 00 purchase and Legend of Korra I am already at $230 just on blue-rays and DVDs this year. (though I this is the first year have been getting anime) and with netflix, Funimation and Cruchyroll I have another $150 gone for streaming. (there is a season on every chanel I have been watch the past few months. So yeah I spend almost as much as I do on gaming.....

Im a student but don't really have much to besides that so about 1/3 of my income goes to anime or about $900 a month on anime dvds, posters, figures, and manga. Already have three bookshelves for this stuff after just four months of collecting so far. Love supporting the industry.


Wait, what?! $900 a month?! Are you sure you don't mean 90? If $900 a month is a third of your salary I would really like to know what you do


$2700 is actually pretty doable if you work two jobs (I do, but I pay for schooling with a large portion of it), my main job pays about $1600 a month, and I just sell furniture.

Maybe.. $30 a year on manga? So that'd only be around 6 volumes.. my mom doesn't approve of anime much, so she's really strict when it comes to what I buy.

I don't buy much anime, as sad as that sounds; most of the series I want are either too expensive or haven't come out on DVD yet. I do stream on Hulu Plus (for the anime) though, so that's about $60 a year, and now with CR that adds another $60. If I had a job I'd be buying a lot more things, but so far I've been unsuccessful..

I never really thought about it, but i probably spend about 1200$ a year, so about 100$ a month.
Just depends on how much i work a month and what job i work, since i have 2.

A lot, or, I used to. Now I've slowed down and only get around two or three shows a year. I mean, as in complete shows - all seasons, ovas, etc. For example: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. There is the first season, the second season, the shorts, and last, the movie. It comes out at around over a hundred for the whole thing. Of course, there are exceptions like with cheap buys and whatnot. As for manga - even less. The only manga I'm really sure about collecting is Gunslinger Girl, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gantz, and Higurashi. Everything else I just try out and buy a volume or two and then go from there.

I purchase imports and localized products - it doesn't matter to me. For instance, I purchased the Time of Eve OVAs and the manga Koimoku from Japan and when the kickstarter for the Time of Eve movie gets further along I'll get that as well.

Right now, I have around 68 separate anime titles, maybe 70. Once I hit 100 I'll probably stop. As for manga - I have 8 titles so far. I may go to 20 and stop there. Who knows?

These days? ... $6.95 per month.



Money can be hard to come to by in a post-recession world.
